ietfdb (7.28.0) ietf; urgency=medium

    a wsgi instance.

  * Merged in [18900] from
    Tweaks to dockerfile to avoid rust compiler issues.

  * Merged in [18901] from

    Corrected template to remove spurious No Documents Match warning. Fixes

  * Merged in [18905] from
    Point bibxml3 to I-D archive so that all version numbers are handled
    properly, and perform more robust revision suffix cleanup. Fixes #3188.

  * Merged in [18906] from
    Provide bibxml test for drafts that end in a hyphen and a digit.

  * Merged in [18909] from
